"Once again we found peace in this hide-away-gem for the soul. It's here in the stillness of the forest where you can really unwind - find yourself again. Where you can play with butterflies and bunnies and still hear the call of the Piet-My-Vrou and the Loerie high above you in the majestic treetops. It's here where if you listen "inwards" you can hear the laughter of fairies. This place is very deeply settled in my heart. Sad to leave again after coming to pick up a piece of me which I left behind last year - knowing that I've left behind another piece of me. But also knowing that once again this is not farewell, but till we meet again." - Marieke Van Staden, Port Elizabeth, December 2016

"Peaceful and very comfortable, we loved the (optional) outdoor shower, the birds and bunnies and all the info on what to do in the area.

"We shuffled around our whole holiday in order to have a couple of days at Forest Edge, and our hearts sank when we learnt that an electrical blow-out threatened our opportunity to stay. But the owner and staff somehow managed to keep the place running, and they could not have been more accommodating, helpful and friendly. We appreciated the whole experience as part of our adventure, and just piled on the extra blankets. The cottage itself is delightful and we lacked nothing. The charming touches were very sweet. I loved being able to lie in the hammock and listen to the birds. The location is superb. We enjoyed the 'Circles in a Forest' walk very much and were thrilled to see a troop of baboons. The Drupkelders walk was more challenging than expected - be aware that it is steep and a week after heavy rain it was very slippery. We enjoyed watching the DVD about the Knysna elephants and we are now heading to Addo in the hope of seeing some for ourselves!

"I was triggered by the extreme high numbers of excellent reviews this property has on Tripadvisor... Let's try it out ourselves, we thought. Super romantic and truly unique. The whole property is very eco friendly. The wifi works very well and has a good signal. The cottage is very well equipped, everything you think of is there. It was so nice sitting outside in the hammock in the evening listening to the sounds of nature, hearing bird noises I've never heard before in my life. There are walking trails next to the property. The garden is very well maintained. Staying here feels like a... fairy tale. Strongly recommended. (Shortened by Editor) " - Peter Sodermans, Luxembourg, February 2014
